The illustrations are the best part — but the simple story and funny ending are also wonderful. This is a favorite book from my childhood, so I was thrilled to discover it at the library to share with my preschooler! I love this book because it tells the story of animals invading a garden — with the gardener doing everything she can to keep thm out, only to be thwarted by another animal!

Christine is an ex-secretary, wife, mother, grandmother — and a farmer for more than 40 years, now living on and enjoying this end of her life on a retirement farm in beautiful Australia. Her book covers say 'Author - Christine Larsen', and it's true… finally. Decades ago her written creations were shelved, in the belief that editors' rejections equalled no talent.
Instead she concentrated on raising a family and meeting the various needs of farming, including successfully raising a myriad of animals, nine of which were kangaroos.
Folktales, Fairy Tales and Myths
Christine has been rescuing something or someone ever since — on Lifeline telephones; adopting three 'special needs' children; in the community as a Careworker; animals from shelters; and from the Charity shops — abandoned small knitted folk. Throughout these years she remained an avid reader and wannabe author, constantly 'moodling' about this — until, like a volcano, Christine's creative writing skills had no choice but to erupt, and here she is - working her fingers to the bone on her computer and having the time of her life.
Welcome to her world! It focuses more on activities that are stimulating for children and challenges them to be more creative and aware of the world we live in. But sometimes these deviations are intentional; the performer or artisan want to play with the boundaries of expectation and add their own creative touch.
They perform within the tension of conserving the recognized form and adding innovation. The folklorist Barre Toelken identifies this tension as " As the context changes, so must the artifact, for without modifications to map existing artifacts into the evolving cultural landscape, they lose their meaning. Joking as an active form of verbal lore makes this tension visible as joke cycles come and go to reflect new issues of concern. Once an artifact is no longer applicable to the context, transmission becomes a nonstarter; it loses relevancy for a contemporary audience.
If it is not transmitted, then it is no longer folklore and becomes instead an historic relic. It is too soon to identify how the advent of electronic communications will modify and change the performance and transmission of folklore artifacts. Just by looking at the development of one type of verbal lore, electronic joking , it is clear that the internet is modifying folkloric process, not killing it.
Jokes and joking are as plentiful as ever both in traditional face-to-face interactions and through electronic transmission. New communication modes are also transforming traditional stories into many different configurations. The fairy tale Snow White is now offered in multiple media forms for both children and adults, including a television show and video game. A more generalized analysis of folklore in the electronic age will have to wait for further studies to be published in the field. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
